That’s right, my boorish partisan, keep your hands to yourself and don’t make extended eye contact. Today I bring to you everything you need to know about sexual harassment, ever. Many companies will provide mandatory sexual harassment seminars, some of which last for hours. This is patently absurd, since there is only one rule regarding sexual harassment:
If you have to ask if it is OK, the answer is NO.
That’s it. End of story.
“But what I just…” No.
“Suppose I accidentally grazed…” NO.
“But sometimes you just can’t resist…” For the love of God, people – NO NO NO!
Not so fast, people! Just one more thing I’d like to share with you- Equal Rights Advocates defines sexual harassment as “unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile work environment.” So, as long as it is welcome, not pervasive, low-key, and doesn’t affect the ability of the person you are interested in to get their work done, and doesn’t make them feel gross when they clock in every day…you still have a shot!
But probably not.
